In “Maybe The Concert Industry Is Just As Screwed As The Recorded-Music Biz” news, the promoter of next week’s Phoenix shows by Jimmy Eat World and Death Cab For Cutie is offering last-minute discounts on tickets, despite both acts selling out the same venues on their last tour stops here. Whether said soft sales are the result of sky-high ticket prices and surcharges or ever-increasing prices for everyday goods (especially gas), one might think that it’s going to be vastly more difficult to fill mid-sized venues over the coming months.
